Wish You Were Here

Thank you, everyone.  I am overwhelmed by the response. 

Things are hectic here.  The wake is Wednesday, and we leave Thursday, at 7am, to go to the airport for the flight to Indianapolis for the wedding on my mom's side of the family.

My parents are going to make the 6 plus hour round trip.  My mom doesn't want me to do it.  She is being a mom, and worrying about me, and wants me to conserve myself for the trip to Indy, with the two kids.  Between the RA/Lupus, the new med not working, the heat, the brain thingy and numbness/facial pain.  I just don't know either.

I could scream.

I haven't decided what I am doing yet.

I can't get this song out of my head, so I decided to share the lyrics with you all.

Uncle Larry would appreciate it.  Although, he was more of a country, and 50's rock fan.  LOL

Wish You Were Here Lyrics by Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

be well,

Follow Your heart and the rest will follow. Love Pink Floyd (one of my favorites growing up). Take care of you and enjoy your day!

Cannot add to previous advice. Do what you think is right, by others and by yourself. Take care.

Let your Mom help where she can and try to take the rest in stride. I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers on the smoke during this difficult time for you.
I absolutely loved "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd. (Hugs) Indigo

Dawn ~ That's such a great song...for a million different reasons.  I know the "I could just scream" feeling.  I am there with you.  Should you need a shoulder to lean on or a few words to lift you up.  I am here for you.  Prayers in abundance!!!
Hugs ~ Irene

Dammit!  I ordered you a big bunch of good luck for the rest of the year and it hasn't arrived!  Pay attention to your health needs during all this travel and stress.

You take care of yourself and your family will understand.  If you do decide to make the trip just rest, and drink plenty of water.  Wonderful song.  De ;)

ukgal36 said...

I am sorry to hear about your Uncle..sounds like he was one cool dude...
take care of YOU

deshelestraci said...

I hate when you have a tough choice to make.  I think he would forgive you not being there.  He knew how much you loved him.  

mleighin21st said...

Dawn,  I know these decisions are always tough.  You have to think of your health above all else.  Your Uncle Larry would be most understanding, if you weren't there.  Do what is best for you, saying goodbye can come in many different forms.  keeping you in my thoughts.     Leigh

 p.s.  I just LOVE Pink Floyd !

tenyearnap said... all-time favorite song.
You take care of yourself as best you can. I don't blame your Mom for wanted you to be very cautious right now. There are only so many spoons, ya know.
Take care,

Please take care of yourself.
I love that song.  Thomas plays it well on the guitar, and it is actually the ring tone on my cell phone.

Life's a crazy trip aint it? You and Uncle Larry musta had some good times together I hope. Did he ever give you a ride on his bike? (I'm still envisioning a Harley)
Maybe he woulda like these lyrics from one of my fav Pink Floyd songs... definetly going to be played at my wake...

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey teacher leave us kids alone
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

Thinking of you.
